Uploader comment: Clear, sunny skies greeted the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Terra satellite as it passed over the Antarctic Peninsula on April 24, 2012, allowing it to capture this bright true-color image of the region. Not only were the skies clear on that day, but it was warm.
